2019 / 108 minutes

Languages: Hebrew, Arabic, English with subtitles

Directors: Philippe Bellaiche, Rachel Leah Jones

A look at the life and work of Jewish-Israeli lawyer Lea Tsemel who has

represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years. We meet Lea and the

team as they prepare for their youngest defendant yet—Ahmad, a

13-year-old boy implicated in a knife attack on the streets of Jerusalem.

To many, Lea is a traitor who defends the indefensible. For others, s

he’s more than an attorney—she’s a true ally.
